Blizzard's responses on the Real ID situation {WoW}

Jul 7th 2010 12:34AM @Adam : The fact that you've had to moderate a post to remove a Blizz employee's personal information says so much about this situation.

Why should this guy be special: His name is going to be on the forums as easily accessible as anyone else.

The point is to show how unbelievably bad of an idea this is, and the best way to make that point is to drill it home directly to Blizzard.

I bet dude won't be happy when he goes into the office tomorrow. "Hey guys, I got a couple thousand phone calls last night... maybe RealID on forums isn't a great idea after all."

Have you met Marcus 'PSP' Rivers? {Joystiq}

I too vote we bring out the banhammer for this ass.

Cataclysm Beta: New blacksmithing items revealed {WoW}

Jul 1st 2010 5:39AM I'm an Axe man, and there's just something about cleaving someone in two that just says "dayum". I mean, I'm sure a sword could cleave someone, but it'd probably take a whack or two.

Mmm. Mayhem.

Lichborne: Unholy DPS in Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

Jun 30th 2010 12:46AM My god, what an idea.

A 41/51 point talent that converts Int to Str and Spirit to Agility.

Bam, Unholy has it's unique-ness back, and SP Plate isn't just for one spec of one class.

Jun 27th 2010 11:39PM @Sally : If I wasn't already married, you'd have just won my heart.

@ch3burashka : I didn't say I've completely stopped watching television or movies, I've just started taking the route of Sally above. Netflix Instant Streaming is amazing because of it's ad-free-ness. Torrents are great as well. When I go to see a movie in theaters, which is rare (because most are junk remakes/sequels/exploitation/etc), I don't mind sitting through an ad or two if they're before/after the trailers. They may be advertisement, but I do like trailers. A really well made movie trailer is enough to make you forget about the movie you're seeing. But I digress. I'm not cutting society out, just as much of the junk as I can.

@Tenacioustoaster : Yes, I have seen some of the Kevin Butler spots, some of which I actually looked up on my own, namely the Uncharted commercial. I think that some advertisements can be acceptable, and I'm not just saying that because it's video game related. Any advertisement with a sense of self-awareness and strong wit can win me over. At work earlier tonight I caught an ad by a big insurance company that stated the most common element in the universe was Hydrogen, and the second most common was advertisements. I gotta admit that it made me smirk. Not enough to make me change my insurance, but it's good to know they're aware of themselves.

Next up on Saint's rants: Modern music and the kids who listen to it.

Jun 27th 2010 4:18PM @Coffey : The hate on Ads is because there SHOULDN'T be billboards and commercials and radio spots EVERYWHERE in real life, let alone in our video games.

I made a point two years ago to get rid of Cable TV, stop listening to the radio, and try my hardest to just generally avoid advertisements in general. Two years later I can not stand any form of commercial. If I'm at a Doctor's office and the TV is on and a Colgate commercial comes on I feel uneasy inside of myself. Once you realize how perverse and overwhelming the advertisement industry is, you can't unseen it.

But ultimately, I play video games to escape from real life. Putting ads in games just takes away from that and is just further proof that our beloved hobby is going down the drain.

The Queue: Long live the shaman {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2010 4:25PM You answered someone's question and you answered it in a dick way.

That smartass response is what I expect from a forum troll, not from a writer.

We understand that these questions get asked all the time, over and over, but I read these comment sections regularly and I can tell you I don't see these questions posted as much as they seem to get posted on the queue. Meanwhile I've seen some damned good questions asked in the comments before, and just totally ignored by the crew.

So instead of digging up a question with some meat to it, you just chose a question you could answer like a dick. Bravo.

Metroid: Other M trailer keeps things in perspective {Joystiq}

Jun 19th 2010 12:10AM @toadsworth I gotta agree, it does look like it's running well over 60fps.

Makes me wonder if the game is actually going to be at that breakneck speed or if the gameplay footage was just sped up slightly.

Please let the game play that fast.

WB's new 'Mortal Kombat' tests our might in 2011 {Joystiq}

Jun 10th 2010 5:49PM Earlier in the week we get an awesome film interpretation of Mortal Kombat, and today we get an equally awesome reboot of the game series?!

And I was SO upset about Midway going belly up, but honestly, if Midway's death is what is needed to put MK back into popularity, then so be it.

Man this game looks so awesome.

WSJ: GameCrazy officially shuttered in US alongside Hollywood Video {Joystiq}

May 4th 2010 12:22AM Levi: Go watch Arrested Development. That is all.
